TECUMSEH, Okla. – A procession of law enforcement officers surround a home following allegations of child pornography.

Sheriff Mike Booth, with the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office, said, “As you can see, it takes quite a few people to make sure we do this right. We’ve got to have people covering the perimeter. We’ve got to have people doing the entry. There are different variables when you hit a house.”

Suited up in protective gear, a number of task forces served a search warrant on a Tecumseh home in the 500 block of W. Washington on Friday morning.

Agent Steve Tanner, with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, said they were searching for child pornography under an investigation led by the Shawnee Police Department.

Tanner said, “The search warrant allows us to look at any type of computer-related items and things that can store images and videos.”

Tanner said electronics were seized and will be combed over.

He said, “The number one goal in all of this is to identify local children. So once we get in there and look at some of the images in there, we’ll start looking to see if there are any local children.”

Two people were brought out of the house.

However, they were questioned and released.

Law enforcement officials say this home had a number of red flags.

Sheriff Booth said, “Some of the warning signs, like this house, they had lots of cameras set up. They not only had cameras set up on the outside but on the inside of the house.”

That combined with savvy computer crime investigators led the law to their front door.

So far, no arrests have been made.

Officials say the investigation is ongoing and it may take them weeks to go through the computers and electronic devices that were seized as evidence.
